Alaka‘i Development is currently advancing the development of a 318-unit rental community in West Oahu. The site’s location at the entrance to the rapidly maturing Ho’opili master plan; next to UH West Oahu; on the major North South road, Kualaka‘i Parkway; and immediately adjacent to the UH West Oahu stop for Oahu’s new rapid transit system will give The Element a location advantage that will pay dividends for the life of the community.

Construction began in January 2020 and leasing applications will be available in Summer 2020. The community amenities include a clubhouse lounge, pool, covered barbeque & picnic areas, fitness center, park, and a café. The Element will offer one, two, and three-bedroom units with 9’ foot ceilings, granite countertops, energy star appliances, in-unit washer and dryers, central air conditioning, and some units will have bonus rooms.

“Element” is defined as any of the four substances air, water, fire, and earth. It also means “the state natural or suited to a person.” At The Element, we will incorporate memorable, natural materials which will connect our residents to their environment. Our clubhouse lounge is designed to have an open-air feel suitable for an entrepreneur working poolside on their blog, informal business meetings over coffee, family barbeques, a baby’s first birthday, and hosted resident events.

As advances in technology evolve, so do our communities. Sustainability is at the forefront of all our developments and the Element will set a new standard in the State of Hawaii. We will be implementing a net-zero energy strategy by incorporating roof and carport-mounted solar panels together with battery storage. By generating as much electricity as the residents consume, the community’s single largest operating expense, electricity is controlled. With the boom of e-commerce, The Element will also incorporate an automated package locker system to accommodate the growing number of packages that arrive daily. The locker system provides automated access for package delivery carriers thereby relieving leasing staff of otherwise tending to package overflow. Residents will be notified of delivery by an app on their phone that can be scanned to give them access to their packages.
